Just incase you didn't know, eBay bought Skype and plans to use it as
a direct marketing engine, i.e. neverending telemarketing, maybe even
videophone direct marketing through Skype. Straight from Skype's press
"The acquisition also enables eBay and Skype to pursue entirely new
lines of business. For example, in addition to eBay's current
transaction-based fees, ecommerce communications could be monetized on
a pay-per-call basis through Skype."
